  • Combine all the ingredients into a large bowl. Whisk together until a uniform, thick purple batter forms.
  • Heat a little bit of butter over medium low heat. Make sure to use a nonstick pan.
  • Use a ⅓ cup measuring spoon or a soup ladle to spoon the batter into the center of the pan. Move in a circular motion to get that perfect circular pancake.
  • Cook the pancake for 1-2 minutes until small bubbles start to appear. Flip the pancake, and cook for another 1-2 minutes.
  • Transfer the pancake onto a plate. Repeat this process until the batter is used up. You should get about 8 pancakes.
  • Top the pancakes with fresh fruit and a drizzle of maple syrup.


The key to the purple color is Butterfly Ube Extract. I've only used this ube extract for my ube desserts, and I only have to use a little bit to get a vibrant purple color. If you're using other ube extracts, I would double the amount you use.
